Relax. Renew. Restore.

Improve the quality of your golden years.

 

Pilates helps work little stabilizer muscles in our bodies, improving our balance and stability. As we age, core work significantly helps prevent injuries or mitigate any existing conditions. 

Our pilates instructors guide movement to relieve muscle pain and restore mental wellness. Whether you’re looking for yourself or a loved one, pilates for seniors has the benefit of rejuvenating the body.  

  • In-home: pilates lessons in the comfort and privacy of your home
  • Focus: healing, restoration, and stability  
  • Anahana Wellness Advisor to support and motivate you throughout your journey
